luckily it was other. which was your favorite? according to the fox foxnews.com poll the winner was the lightning strike. >> granny mixing up the confetti with the drink was second. the stunt driver none. "fox & friends" starts now. have a great weekend. >> good morning. it is friday, august 16. the n.s.a. reveals it broke the law and your privacy is apparently not safe. new details this morning and they are not pretty. >> insult or awareness? abbeys lambic -- an islamic group planning a march on 9/11 saying muslims are the real victims here. the imam who defends this thing coming up. >>brian: just when you thought you were up on all the latest fashion trends,
3:01am
a new one is all the rage. look at this. it is a pooch purse. now it's gone. "fox & friends" starts now. ♪ ♪ >>brian: the all american summer concert series about to start. any moment the tower of power will be jamming into that stage with a shoehorn. all of them are here. we have free food out on the veranda. they do not have to grill. they get to eat and they get to play. and they entertain new york
3:02am
city as shannon comes in from washington early for the madness. >>shannon: we're excited. and the song what is hip must be about you? with a pooch purse? >>brian: yeah. we'll finally get to the bottom of that. the tower of power is the most powerful name in news has a lot of power. we also have richard skaggs coming up and also huge news happened overnight as we were e-mailing back and forth and i was watching you last night on special report. seems like a lifetime ago. good thing we got you that jet deal and the jet back. >>shannon: he only goes private, you know that. no commercial. >>brian: if you've ever flown next to tucker carlson, write us because aoebl shannon is -- because i believe shannon is
3:03am
correct. >>tucker: i take the train. >>brian: shannon, tell us what's happening. >>shannon: chaos in egypt as they brace for more protest today. this as the muslim brotherhood calls for a nationwide day of rage. president obama joining ex-military comments. >> our traditional cooperation cannot continue as violence continues in the streets. >>shannon: the u.s. supplies $1.3 billion in aid to egypt but the president says that could be on the chopping block if the violence continues. >> he's accomplished the remarkable feat in the last two and a half years of alienating every single faction in egypt. he just needs to back off now and accept the fact the egyptians have come to this path themselves, and they
3:04am
will have to resolve it. >>shannon: this as the death toll continues to rise from this week's bloody crackdown on muhammad morsi supporters. nearly 650 people have been confirmed killed, thousands more injured. troubled actress lisa robin kelly who stars on that 70's show died after going into cardiac arrest. she just checked herself into the treatment facility on monday for alcohol abuse. over the past three years the actress made headlines for a string of d.u.i. and assault arrests. lisa robin kelly was 43 years old. >> a seven-month-old florida boy died after eating a detergent pod. if confirmed it will be the first death in the country tied to those laundry packets. according to poison control centers, more than 5,000 children have been sickened by the pods this year.
3:05am
they have warned of the dangers thinking children might think those pods are candy. they are barking with style. check out the pooch pouch. pouch pooch. this purse is the latest fashion trend to hit the streets. the bags come in a variety of sizes for mostly small breeds. i carry a lot of stuff. they sell for $100. the pooch purse is always sold out. i saw you with the maltease model. once you go there, everybody wants one. >>brian: i'll go for my mountain dog sack to the chiropractor. what about that story that broke in the washington about the n.s.a.?
3:06am
>>tucker: remember how we had been reassured by this administration and various members of congress that don't worry, we're not spying on you. this information we're gathering is to defeat terrorists. it has nothing to do with spying on americans. it turns out last year according to an internal audit, 2,776 times the n.s.a. violated that standard. keep in mind this is not a fact they reported to congress or even to the administration. this is basically no oversight here. this is reported to us in leaked documents given to "the washington post." congress didn't know this. >>shannon: there are checks and balances built into the system is what we've been told so the average american shouldn't be worried because there is somebody checking on somebody else with each decision made. but the fisa court, judges appointed by the chief justice john roberts, now they are saying we have no way to follow what the government tells us to do. there is no check on our decision. >>brian: it turns out in their defense most of these violations were unintended
3:07am
they say. here's the quote we're a human run agency with a number of regulatory regimes so at times we find ourselves on the wrong side of the line. one time, for example, they thought they were tracking egypt which is a 2-0 country code. they were tracking washington at 202 so they looked at a whole bunch of 202 numbers, american numbers. their intention could still have been in the right way but their execution could have ended up violating. >>tucker: even if these were honest mistakes and presumably most of them were, there is still deception around them. in june we were told by this administration we're going to be as transparent as time. this is what the deputy attorney general said every now and then there may be a mistake. about 3,000 of them. if you make mistakes, own up to them. >>brian: we saw michael hayden come forward, former vice president dick cheney come forward and defend the premise of the program.
3:08am
now we find out the people executing the program as it got bigger weren't doing it and in a way i guess wasn't disciplined. john sununu, used to be the chief of staff for president bush 41 helped mitt romney try to get elected, and former governor. listen. >> the biggest problem in all of this is this culture and attitude that the lines of the law don't have to be followed strictly, and that culture and attitude comes from a president who tries to impose taxes on his own, who decides when obamacare can meet the letter of the law and when it doesn't have to meet the letter of the law. it comes from a president that instructs his e.p.a. to invent ways to get around congress, where he stands up and said, and says to the public that the executive branch is going to find ways to avoid the limitations imposed constitutionally, where congress has a responsibility. that's a terrible attitude, and it's what promotes and
3:09am
nurtures the kinds of things you're seeing coming out of the n.s.a. >>brian: he's pointing to the president. i have a question for you. do you really point to the president on this? is this the clandestine community doing what they were tasked to do, keep us safe, stop the next terror attack before it happens by listening it, find out where the terrorists are and stop them before they execute their crime? or is the president totally in the dark on this? >>tucker: that's the scarceiest possibility of all, the idea that the executive not actually overseeing the executive branch. nay, c.i.a., all the alphabet soup agencies report directly to the president. constitutionally that is the way it is set up. if he has no idea what they are doing, that is a problem. >>shannon: this leads to the idea that the president is responsible for overseeing these things but he picks and chooses. by my count the constitution, article 2 i believe it is, says he has the duty to uphold the laws of the land.
3:10am
but we've seen this administration, not the president but others in the administration decide when they're going to do that and when they aren't. >>brian: there are examples of him using executive orders to do stuff he says congress is unwilling to do. is he breaching the constitution? >>shannon: i wrote the constitution. i was there when they signed it. >>brian: here's an example of our presidential proclamation, some of the things he's done. he's made changes on his own to the health care law. he's delayed certain elements of the implementation of the health care law. he told people we'll give you subsidies to help you pay for the health care law. is that okay? he's also ordered cell phone taxes to provide wi-fi for schools across the country. that's something coming to a country near you which happens to be this country. >>shannon: the president said twice he directed the f.c.c. to do that but that's an independent agency. >>tucker: the process is bad and it probably is an abuse of his authority. but it is such a bad policy.
3:11am
there was a study out today that shows giving laptops to schoolkids distracts them from their homework. technology is not the answer in schools. give them ipads and they'll become brilliant. it is not actually a fix. anybody who has teenagers -- i've got a bunch of them -- will tell you it can be you feel technology but it's not the answer. >>brian: they get the congress bent out of shape. but some of the things the president has done in the past, for example, when it comes to mandatory sentences for drug offenders, he said that's go got to change and through eric holder, his attorney general, he moved on that this week. and could also, with mandatory sentences, could immigration be next? >>shannon: think about the directive that came, and there is a lawsuit with ice agents that are suing because they have been told to violate their oath under
3:12am
the law because basically they have been told to let people go. >>brian: because of the execution of the president's order on the dream act. >>shannon: the president said congress won't work with him so he's got to go around them on some things. the idea of checks and balances gets blurred. >>brian: now you have senator rubio saying listen you know the president loves executive orders, he does things to bypass congress. if we don't pass the immigration law he's going to start passing it piece by piece and you republicans aren't going to like any of it. at least you like some of it now. >>tucker: quite an argument. >>brian: that's tuckers way of saying i'd rather move on. last night as this story came down, if you don't mind breaching our e-mail security, you said let's talk about this today. and the million muslim march that's coming to us on 9/11/2013. >>shannon: folks say the muslim community has been
3:13am
targeted. there is discrimination against people who are completely peaceful and innocent. i understand that point. but the date is going to be hard for some people. 9/11 is the date they're going to march. that is not going to, i don't think, help their cause. >>tucker: it depends. if there's real contrition, denunciation of terror, it may be helpful. we'll see. hannity is not convinced. this is the exchange last night on his show. >> this is a very salem day and we're -- a very solemn day and we're supposed to remember the victims, their families, children that lost parents that never saw them again and you want to turn this into a day about anti-islamic bigotry? >> not really. we muslims, we denounce terrorism and we understand with the solidarity denouncing that -- >> that is not what your statement says at all. >>brian: should that da be about the muslim community or should that day be about all those americans who lost their lives, whether you were in the planes that hit the
3:14am
buildings, the pentagon or night 93, or should it be about the million muslim march? either way it's going to be a story. straight ahead, he's the worst boss ever. this guy caught drugging his kphraoe's drink? -- employees drink. >>tucker: a billionaire betting on our economy to fail. what does that mean? charles payne on deck to explain. ♪ ♪ ♪ our most fabulous jacket collection. only at chico's and chicos.com. because all these whole grains aren't healthy unless you actually eat them ♪ multigrain cheerios. also available in delicious peanut butter. healthy never tasted so sweet. it's a reality check. i had my reality check when i'd be sitting there with my friends

3:17am
>> billionaire investor george soros has given millions of dollars away. but now since the country is struggling with a deep recession he's betting the market will crash. what does this mean with the economy? >>brian: here to explain charles payne to my immediate left. what can we learn from
3:18am
soros's actions? >> other than he thinks the market will go down. here's the thing, it doesn't have to be connected to the u.s. economy because the market in my mind is not up because of the u.s. economy. we're up 9,000 points from the low. we've only had a 5% correction this year, the most we pulled back. you can almost say we're due. everyone senses we're due for some sort of normal correction/pull back in the economy. there is speculation that the federal reserve is going to stop or taper some of their actions. in other words, every month they buy $85 billion worth of assets, they pump money into the federal government and to banks. that money in my mind has not been getting to main street except for maybe zero percent interest on car loans. if the fed does paper now, if the fed does start to pull back on its so-called accommodation, it's not because the u.s. economy is great in my mind. it's because we've done all we can, our policies are not working and the risks
3:19am
outweigh the rewards. >>tucker: tell us about those risks. $85 billion a month basically pumping fresh money into the system. what are the consequences of that? >> their balance sheet used to be $1 trillion. now it's $3 trillion. the consequences are a significant imbalance in our economy and ultimately probably a major bout of inflation because the more money that goes out there, supply and demand, the more watered down it becomes. ideally it should be reflected in wages. what the fed would love to do, the traditional definition in inflation is when there's too much money taken, too few goods. unfortunately for the fed the only thing that has happened is prices have gone up, people's wages haven't gone you will. when you hear ben bernanke speaking, you can hear the frustration. >>shannon: how important do you think the next fed chair appointment is going to be? >> they're going to be cut more or less from the same
3:20am
cloth. it would be great if we had a fed chair independent of washington and not beholden to washington. the president gets to make the selection. in that regard if we have someone who occasionally says not afraid to speak out against the white house, remember when president obama threw ben bernanke under the bus, he called him a partner, said he's been a great partner of ours in this recovery. the fed is not supposed to be your partner. >>brian: when we watch varney and company, what should we expect? >> people are afraid the market is going to collapse. i'm going to have a bear who's been calling it. i don't think it's going to collapse. i see a pull-back. it's important. i don't want people to be shaken out after finally being able to break even or make money. >>brian: coming up straight ahead, she won a gold medal and set a world record as a swimmer at last
3:21am
year's paralympics. but now she's been banned because there is a chance she might walk again. she joins us live. >>tucker: this fellow stepped on an eight-foot gator. now he's a hero. mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004. vietnam in 1972.

>>shannon: quick headlines. a cafe at walter reed medical center suspending meal tickets and cutting back hours because of sequester cuts. thanks to our reporting and complaints from our nation's heroes and their families, the military has reversed their decision. n.s.a. leaker edward snowden says journalists have been misled by his situation by people associated with his father. he says neither his father
3:25am
nor lawyer represent him in any way. >>brian: she won a gold medal and set a world record as a swimmer in last year's paralympics. but the 18-year-old's dreams were dashed this week when the paraolympic committee deemed her ineligible. even though victoria is paralyzed from the waist down, it was ruled her condition is not perfect and she could walk again. so judges ruled this morning at this hour not eligible to compete in something she was probably going to set a new world record in. victoria, thanks for joining us. what was it like getting the news that you were probably not going to be able to compete? >> thank you for having me. it was devastating. i trained so hard and was not expecting this at all. it's pretty shocking. >>brian: describe to everybody what you've been through in your life. first at the age of 11. >> i became paralyzed when i was 11. shortly after that i
3:26am
slipped into a coma for about three years and had to basically relearn how to do everything from talking to moving, and then also learning how to use a wheelchair and get through life in a wheelchair. it's been quite the journey of coming back from, you know, being at that store about three times and being in a coma to getting back into school and getting back into sports. it's been a long road. >>brian: you worked like crazy, paralyzed from the waist down and you're able to have all this success in the water. but the best is yet to come. this hopkins doctor looks at you and says with hard work there is a chance you'll walk again, but he never meant you to be banned from the paralympics coming up with that analysis. >> no. i mean with all the technology breakings with spinal cord injury, there is hope for pretty much everyone. i'm a hopeful person. if i didn't have hope, i
3:27am
wouldn't be here today. there's a chance for everyone with a lot of rehab and different technologies that are coming out for spinal cord injury that there is hope. i'm always looking for hope. and basically what happened is i was penalized for having hope. >>brian: incredible. that is what these games are about. meanwhile the i.p.c. says in the banning of victoria arlen, which is you, he failed to provide conclusive evidence of a permanent eligible impairment. therefore, despite your success and despite your experience, you can't go. where are we at now? >> you know, i honestly don't know. we had provided about 75 pages of medical documents last year before london and they had those. and we had new updated information because my condition, it hasn't changed. i've been paralyzed for seven years. if anything, my condition has worsened a little bit. so we had some additional
3:28am
information because i had gone to johns hopkins to make sure that i wasn't getting worse and that things weren't going downhill like they have in the past. and it ended up, you know, i don't know what's now because it's out of my control. if there's nothing -- there's nothing i can do at the moment. >>brian: considering everything you've already accomplished, my sense is you're going to prevail here and they'll come to their senses. that is our hope. victoria arlen, thanks for sharing your story. weigh in here at "fox & friends" and tell us what you think about it. and victoria will continue to track it. have a great weekend. cnn and nbc airing specials on hillary clinton before the 2016 election. what do the republicans do about the bias? their brand-new plan next. >> this guy caught drugging his employees drinks.

a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods.
3:32am
nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit celebrex.com and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion. >> san diego mayor has been accused of sexual harassment by 14 women. 14 women. now there's so many, a hot line has been established. this is not a joke. now a hot line has been established to take any new
3:33am
sexual harassment claims. the number is 1-800-how is this guy still mayor? >>brian: i was out in san diego when he decided to go into rehab with his laptop and continue to be mayor. i got problems but i'm not quitting. >>tucker: rehab for sex addiction. look at the latest accuser. this is peggy shannon, she is i believe 68 years old. she is a great-grandmother. she says the mayor wrote her and made extremely graphic statements which we cannot state here on the air. this one of his apparent victims. >>shannon: i used to be a sexual harassment attorney. >>brian: have you seen a case like this? >>shannon: not this number of victims. i've seen pretty bad cases but this is like your worst-nightmare clients. >>brian: is the sentence usually rehab? >>shannon: if you can convince the judge. if you're talking about

financial liability, that kind of thing, the more great grandmas that come out of the closet. >>tucker: this guy is casting a wide net. >>shannon: he has equal opportunity -- allegedly. >>brian: i like his original story. i'm a guy that likes to hug a lot. you're going to have to expand. the r.n.c. meeting in full swing in boston. delegates giving serious thought to boycotting the debate if cnn and nbc go ahead with plans to air special programs about hillary clinton, the likely nominee, it seems. we're in boston with the latest. >> good morning, brian, shannon and tucker. thanks for having me. this meeting could have a big impact on debates especially in the near future. the r.n.c. expected to have a vote today weighing in on whether to ban cnn and nbc because they're planning to
3:35am
air documentaries featuring hillary clinton. the vote would mean the r.n.c. would not partner with those networks in the debates in 2016. according to the r.n.c. director, they don't want a news organization tipping the scales in this election >> it's about time that the republican party started taking control of the debate process. we need to create a system that puts the party, the best interest of our candidates at stake. >> also new jersey governor chris christie headlined a closed to press lunch yesterday according to audience members inside. he had tough love basically arguing the r.n.c. should be confident in the republican principles and focus on winning. christie is running for reelection in new jersey and says he aims to win and he is often talked about being one of the likely contenders in 2016 for the
3:36am
republican nomination for president. >>brian: i heard governor christie wowed the audience yesterday essentially saying we've got to win. they're fighting with each other in what he calls naval gazing, something for only people with innies. >>tucker: he's done a little fighting himself, gone after rand paul. >>brian: and a little with governor jindal. >>tucker: attacking other people for fighting. >>brian: this is to me i kind of like because hillary clinton is making it almost abundantly clear she's running and governor christie is making it clear. >>shannon: i would be insulted because everyone is acting like hillary is going to be anointed. how do you think joe biden feels. you know he's thinking what about me? >>brian: howard dean is heading to iowa.
3:37am
you never know about governor cuomo running. xian know, your name is in the prompt -- shannon, your name is in the prompter. >>shannon: investigators say there is no evidence to blame engine failure for that u. p-fpl s. cargo crash. they are hoping to get more information from the black boxes they did recover yesterday. >> these boxes are made not to be opened up. they're made to be, withstand crash forces and heat. therefore, it's a little difficult to get into them. we have to saw into them and cut into them, and that takes some time. and there's software they have to use to download the data. >> the twin engine was bound from pweurplg -- birmingham to louisville when it went down. pilot and copilot died. this man caught on camera drugging one of his

3:39am
>> you went to florida state? >>shannon: i did. >> sorry tucker and brian to leave you out. i have something to say about the weather because we're talking about another beautiful day in store for sections of the northeast. absolutely beautiful out. high temperatures will be a little below average. right now we are on the cool side in some areas like buffalo, parts of pittsburgh, current temperatures only in the 50's. a little unusual for this time of year. otherwise as we get into this afternoon we're going to rise into the low 80's across new york city. expecting widespread 90's across the state of texas. if you live in the florida panhandle or carolinas, you're looking at the possibility of more rain and more thunderstorms today and over the next several days flooding will be a concern. we'll keep an eye on that. back to the studio. >>brian: thank you very much, maria. that is what is going on for your weekend. did you miss "fox & friends" earlier this week?

thanks for joining us this morning. >> good to be with you. >>shannon: i know this ordinance which basically says you can't hold certain positions or get work with this city, and it's in draft form now, if you speak out in word or deed against homosexuality, i know the ordinance has been through a lot of iterations. are you satisfied with where it stands now? have your concerns been met? >> they have not been met at all. there have been a few things changed. but there has been in reality absolutely no change to the ordinance. alan parker, head of the justice foundation, talking with him, this bill will penalize businesses and it does not provide hardly any protection, religious exemption for churches. even though there's been cosmetic change, we feel there still has been absolutely no change of any kind made to it. >>shannon: i want to read a quote from the mayor castro who is making a lot of headlines on the national stage with democrats saying i believe we cannot have second-class citizens in this city. if you are for this ordinance you are against discrimination. if you are against this

ordinance, you are for discrimination. the way that i read this ordinance, it also says people can't be discriminated against on the basis of religion. but if a christian has posted on facebook support for traditional marriage or tweeted something about it in the past, is it your concern that that's actually going to be held against them at some point if this ordinance passes? >> it will be held against them. we have a story that's breaking in san antonio nationally even right now of an airman, sergeant monk, who because of something he thought was fired in the air force the other day. he's a member of my church. the very concerns we have about what the city is doing we're seeing happen around us. we have a story at macy's a year and a half ago where a young lady was fired at macy's for violating macy's code which is similar to what the city of san antonio is trying to do. this is discriminating against people who have moral values and moral traditions and it's going to affect their families, going to affect their pocketbooks and it will affect our churches. we have been warned by

4:19am
you the truth? >> absolutely. if you even look at the e-mails exchanged during this, they called it basically a terrorist attack. they knew what was going on and as was famously said by senator mccain, you don't bring mortars to a youtube video demonstration. this was planned for a very long time. they knew it. for whatever reason they wanted to say this was not an actor terror, it was a spontaneous demonstration. it's irresponsible. >> you do you believe the president wanted people to think he had everything under control? >> yeah. the theory is we're getting out of iraq and out of afghanistan. when america retreats from the world and its leadership retreats from the world, chaos fills that vacuum. the president didn't want to admit it, he didn't want to say it. he was more interested in

5:34am
were discussing all week long, molly. >> brian good morning. one of the big things to watch today is this vote, which could have an impact in the very near future on the debates. the rnc says the expectation today is that this committee will approve a ban on the cnn and nbc as far as the debates are concerned because they're planning to air these documentaries featuring hillary clinton. the vote would mean the rnc will not partner with those networks in the presidential primary debates in 2016 and they wouldn't sanction any of the primary debates either. they simply don't want news organizations tipping the scales in the election. >> any documentary is going to allow that candidate to get a better understanding with the voters, something that all candidates would probably want. i think it's important to make sure we don't then benefit a network that's allowing that to occur. >> this has certainly been a busy meeting.

5:37am
irresponsible to even suggest in is a terror attack, this is a youb video and we need to be very careful of how we're saying this and basically chided this member of congress. i actually sat there in that meeting and believes the secretary of state believes this is a yub video because of how -- >> that's a congressman who is still active in the military. he took it personally. if could have been him in there. hillary clinton, now we know what she knew at the time but he's stunned she would act that way. >> it's interesting in hearing what's around the hill and she seemed to lose her temper a little bit there saying what difference does it make? she is a smart person. she's very politically savvy yet this is the one thing that seems to set her off. she loses a little bit of her

5:39am
playing it out and he might sue baseball if they decides he deserves the 211 games. >> go nats. the ntsb is hoping to get more information from the two black boxes recovered yesterday in the cargo plan crash. >> as you can imagine, these boxes are made not to be opened up, they're made to be -- withstand crash forces and heat. therefore it's a little difficult to get into them. we have to saw into them and cut into them and that takes some time. and there's software they have to use to download the data. >> the plane was going louisville, kentucky to birmingham. it went down trying to land on a shorter runway. the pilot and co-pilot both killed in the crash. >> and he won a gold medal in last year's paralympics. but this year the committee

modelling, the federal government determined that this species would be losing its sea ice habitat and because of the loss of sea ice habitat, they felt it was necessary to put them on the threatened list. but even their own computer modelling, which is very questionable, indicated that within 40 to 50 years there would still be at least 20,000 of these species. there's no question the species is not endangered, it is thriving right now. >> you are taking this all the way to the supreme court. what's the amount of power the federal government has? >> under the efa, if a species is listed, all the -- the argument is co 2 emissions from industry is causing global warming. well, industry is basically energy, food producers, transportation, all those things and if you're going to to make
